Education is beginning to incorporate more and more multi-sensory media into their classrooms. And, that is a good thing!

There are fewer educators, today, who regard student control over the sequencing of material to be inappropriate. And, that is a good thing!

The demise of the traditional lecture and text lesson plan is being replaced with richer lateral thinking.

Although one-on-one learner-controlled multi-sensory media programs are not, yet, the norm in education, the potential is enormous.

However, for American education to open its doors to fully interactive training materials, several barriers must continue to come down.

Educational reform that creates and legitimizes “tech prep” curricula for non-college bound students will remove one of the major obstacles between interactive media training and the traditional school environment.

Another barrier is the real, or perceived, inaccessibility of media to educators. This barrier is now rapidly eroding. Thanks to the advances in e-Learning, interactive media is becoming more attainable to educators, both conceptually and literally.

Today’s responsible educators have perceived the video-laden, multi-sensory framework of our children’s world, and recognized that traditional classroom instruction must evolve in order to keep up with the new learning environment.

Highly visual instruction resources are more and more available to our teachers. Thus, educators are becoming more familiar and comfortable with multi-sensory media technology in the classroom.

Examples of effective teaching with multi-sensory media are appearing in every one of our fifty states. And, the results will prove greatly beneficial for the millions of our youth who are already comfortable in that environment.

More tomorrow – – – – –
